WATCH: Glenn's passionate plea for parents in Central America to stop sending their kids across the border illegally

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn broadcasted his monologue in both English and Spanish and explained - parent to parent, dad to dad - why it is not wise to send unaccompanied children to the U.S. In it, he explained why he was coming to the border with Mercury One to provide basic humanitarian relief, as well as why the parents need to stop sending their kids on the dangerous journey to the United States.

"So you know up front, while I am against illegal immigration, I believe in justice. I also believe in mercy and as a private citizen, I have decided to use my resources to go down to the border where your children perhaps are being held in churches. They are being held in squalor. We don't see some of the pictures because our government won't allow us. We're not allowed to see what's happening in our own country. I and my viewers and my listeners have raised over 2 million dollars to bring your children a teddy bear or a soccer ball or shoes. We are bringing over a million dollars worth of food as well. We do this because we are Christians. I believe deeply in God and I believe if i can't help your child, I'm going to be held responsible for it," Glenn said.

While Glenn wants to provide relief for the children, he wanted the parents to stop sending their kids to the United States.

"First, there's the physical dangers. They will be lucky to make it alive. The journey begins on the death train.To board it, children must jump on to it while it's moving. Many are unable to hold on. They fall, causing them to be trampled by the train, losing arms and legs... If they survive the fall, they are forced to go back home. Back to where they started -- only worse off than before," Glenn said.

"Those who make it closer to the border have to endure extreme terrain -- according to news reports, 'little' dead bodies are washing up on the shores of the Rio Grande," he continued. "Others are not abandoned by a cowardly smuggler just looking to make an easy buck. They are targeted. Taken. Boys and girls both... their human-ness stripped from them... their dignity, their worth, robbed -- as they are sold into sex slavery."

"I beg you. Keep your family together. Do not hand your child off to someone who only cares about making some cash," Glenn said. "No child would trade location in exchange for their parents. Family is a gift. We need mom and dad. It's just the way we're wired. Deep down we all know this to be true. No one has to teach it to us. Your country may be in turmoil. Your town may be dangerous. But nothing is more destructive than breaking apart the family."

Spanish Transcript (scroll down for English):

ESTA NOCHE QUIERO HACER UNA PROGRAMA MUY DIFERENTE. QUIERO HABLAR DIRECTAMENTE A LA GENTE DE MÉXICO, AMÉRICA CENTRAL, Y DEL SUR.

NO UNA CHARLA. NO DESOTRICAR.

SIN JUZGAR. SIN REGAÑAR.

UNA CONVERSACIÓN DE UN PADRE A OTO.

PADRE A PADRE.

HOMBRE A HOMBRE.

CORAZÓN A CORAZÓN.

USTED NO TIENE CUALQUIER IDEA QUIEN SOY. MI NOMBRE ES GLENN BECK Y SOY UN LOCUTOR DE RADIO Y TELEVISION EN LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA. SOY UNA PERSONA QUE ESTÁ MUY EN CONTRA DE LA IMMIGRACIÓN ILEGAL.

NUESTRA FRONTERA ES UN LÍO AQUÍ EN LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS. NUESTRA FRONTERA ESTA LLENA DE DROGAS Y LA VIOLENCIA. LA MAYORÍA DE LOS ESTADOUNIDENSES NO QUIEREN IR CERCA DE NUESTRA FRONTERA. EN ARIZONA HEMOS PERDIDO ALREDEDOR DEL 80 O MAS MILLAS DE LA FRONTERA DONDE NUESTRO GOBIERNO HA PUBLICADO CARTELES QUE DICEN "SI USTED ES UN CIUDADANO AMERICANO, YA NO PODEMOS PROTEGERTE AQUÍ.”

PHOENIX SE HA CONVERTIDO EN LA CAPITAL DE SECUESTRO DEL MUNDO. ESTOY VIENDO UN PAÍS QUE NI SIQUIERA RECONOSCO. Y USTED ESTÁ VIENDO CADA VEZ MÁS COMO AMERICA SE CONVIERTE COMO SUS PAÍSES PORQUE NUESTROS GOBIERNOS ESTAN FUERA DE CONTROL. REALMENTE NO SOMOS TAN DIFERENTE. SOMOS PERSONAS TRATANDO DE SOBREVIVIR, TRATANDO DE SER UNA FAMILIA, SIMPLEMENTE TRATANDO DE CRIAR A NUESTROS HIJOS, TENER UN TRABAJO Y UNA VIDA DIGNA. Y NUESTROS GOBIERNOS A VECES VAN MAL. AMBOS QUEREMOS DOS COSAS: JUSTICIA Y MISERICORDIA.

ASÍ QUE USTED SABE, MIENTRAS QUE ESTOY CONTRA LA INMIGRACIÓN ILEGAL, CREO EN LA JUSTICIA. YO TAMBIEN CREO EN MISERICORDIA Y COMO CIUDADANO PRIVADO, HE DECIDIDO UTILIZAR MI RECURSOS PARA BAJAR HASTA LA FRONTERA DONDE SUS HIJOS QUIZÁS ESTÁN DETENIDOS EN LAS IGLESIAS. ESTÁN RECLUIDOS EN LA MISERIA. NO VEMOS ALGUNAS DE LAS FOTOS PORQUE NUESTRO GOBIERNO NO NOS PERMITE. NO SE NOS PERMITE VER LO QUE ESTÁ SUCEDIENDO EN NUESTRO PROPIO PAÍS. YO, MIS ESPECTADORES, Y MIS OYENTES HAN RECAUDADO MÁS DE 2 MILLONES DE DÓLARES PARA TRAERLE A SUS HIJOS UN OSO DE PELUCHE, O UNA PELOTA, O ZAPATOS DE FÚTBOL. ESTAMOS TRAYENDO MÁS DE UN MILLÓN DE DÓLARES EN COMIDA TAMBIÉN. LO HACEMOS PORQUE SOMOS CRISTIANOS. CREO PROFUNDAMENTE EN DIOS Y CREO SI NO PUEDO AYUDAR A SU HIJO, YO VOY A SER SOSTENIDO RESPONSABLE POR ESO. QUIERO HABLAR CON USTED ESTA NOCHE SOBRE LO QUE USTED NO PUEDE VER. YO NO PUEDO RELACIONARME CON SU VIDA. VEO LAS FAMILIAS DEL SUR DE NUESTRA FRONTERA QUE ESTAN DEVASTADA A LO QUE NOS VAMOS DE VACACIONES Y NOS VAMOS A LUGARES COMO MEXICO. NOS ROMPE EL CORAZÓN VER A LA POBREZA. LAS FAMILIAS QUE SE ESTÁN DESTROZANDO POR LA VIOLENCIA. NO PUEDO COMPRENDER LO QUE ALGUNOS HAN VIVIDO. LO QUE USTED PUEDE ESTAR VIVIENDO. NO PUEDO IMAGINAR NO TENER LOS DERECHOS QUE NOSOTROS NOS DAMOS POR SENTADO. NO ME PUEDO IMAGINAR LOS 14 AÑOS DE VIDA DE CARLOS SANCHEZ. HA TUVIDO OCHO DE SUS AMIGOS Y FAMILIARES ASESINADOS. TRES JUSTO DELANTE DE ÉL. FUE TESTIGO DE UN ASESINATO DOBLE DESPUÉS DE QUE ALGUIEN SE NEGÓ A ENTREGAR SU MOTOCICLETA A UN GRUPO DE DELINQUENTES. Y ENTONCES VIO A UN HOMBRE CAMINANDO A CASA DEL MERCADO, EJECUTADO DERECHO FRENTE A LA CALLE. ÉL DICE AHORA, “¡ES NADA PARA VER UNA PERSONA MUERTA!”

TENGO UN HIJO DE DIEZ AÑOS. YO NO PUEDO IMAGINAR MI HIJO DE DIEZ AÑOS DICIENDO ESO. INCLUSO LOS PROBLEMAS PEORES EN ESTE PAÍS NO SON ESOS. OTRA HISTORIA TAL VEZ DE SU PAÍS - CHRISTIAN OMAR REYES, NIÑO DE 11 AÑOS. ÉL QUIERE VENIR A LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS.

SU PADRE FUE ASESINADO EN MARZO.

SU MAMÁ UTILIZO EL DINERO DE SEGURO DE VIDA PARA CONTRATAR UN CONTRABANDISTA QUE LA LLEVARA A LA FLORIDA.

SÓLO TENÍA SUFICIENTE PARA PAGAR POR SÍ MISMA. LO DEJÓ DETRÁS Y SE COMPROMETIÓ A ENVIAR POR ÉL.

ÉL TODAVÍA NO SABIDO NADA DE ELLA.

NO SABEMOS QUÉ PASÓ CON ELLA.

HA PROMETIDO ESCAPARSE PARA AMERICA ESTE AÑO A BUSCAR A SU MADRE.

SUPONGO QUE PARA ALGUNOS ESTADOUNIDENSES SERÍA FÁCIL DE JUZGAR A LA MADRE PARA DIVIDIR A SU FAMILIA.

MI TIO LEO ERA DE ITALIA. CUANDO LA SEGUNDA GUERRA MUNDIAL PASÓ LA FAMILIA AGREGARON SU DINERO Y ENVIARON MI TÍO A AMÉRICA. ÉL ERA UN CIUDADANO ESTADOUNIDENSE. NACIÓ AQUÍ, PERO LA FAMILIA ERA DE ITALIA. ESTO HA SUCEDIDO EN TODO LA HISTORIA DEL MUNDO. NO LO CULPO A ÉL POR QUERER SALIR. YO NO LOS CULPO A USTEDED POR ENVIAR SUS HIJOS.

LA GENTE DESESPERADA HACE COSAS DESESPERADAS. MIENTRAS ESTOY AQUÍ SENTADO EN LA COMODIDAD RELATIVA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NO VOY A PRESUMIR QUE YO HARÁ NADA DIFERENTE DE LO QUE HAN HECHO O TAL VEZ HAN PENSANDO EN HACER.

ESO ES LO QUE HACE ESTA SITUACIÓN TAN DIFÍCIL. ES POR ESTO QUE MUCHOS DE NOSOTROS EN AMERICA NOS SIENTIMOS TAN APASIONADAMENTE SOBRE SUS HIJOS.

ES POR ESTO QUE MUCHAS PERSONAS HAN TOMADO DIEZ O VEINTE DÓLARES Y LO HAN PUESTO JUNTOS PARA ALIMENTAR O PONER LOS ZAPATOS EN SUS HIJOS. ESTAMOS HACIENDO LO DURO Y NUESTRO PAÍS ESTÁ SIENDO DESTRUIDO PORQUE NUESTRO GOBIERNO NO ESTÁ HACIENDO SU TRABAJO EN LA DEFENSA DE LA JUSTICIA.

COMO HACEMOS LO DURO - VOY A PIDER QUE USTED POR FAVOR CONSIDERE HACER LO DURO TAMBIÉN. ¿RESISTIRAS LA TENTACIÓN DE HUIR O ROMPER A SU FAMILIA?

POR FAVOR, NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A UN CONTRABANDISTA EN EL MEDIO DE LA NOCHE.

A USTED PROBABLEMENTE LE HAN DICHO QUE ESTA ES LA TIERRA DE LECHE Y MIEL.

MIENTRAS QUE LOS POLÍTICOS PROPIO DICEN QUE NO SOMOS UNA NACIÓN EXCEPCIONAL. HEMOS SIDO GRANDEMENTE BENDECIDOS. Y HEMOS COMETIDO ERRORES HORRIBLES EN EL PASADO. HONESTAMENTE A VECES PIENSO QUE NO MEREZCO TODAS LAS BENDICIONES QUE TENEMOS. HEMOS PERDIDO EL CAMINO EN LOS ÚLTIMOS DIEZ O VEINTE AÑOS, PERO ESTAMOS TRATANDO.

USTED PUDO HABER SIDO DICHO QUE SU HIJO TENDRÁ UNA VIDA MEJOR.

PERO TE DIRÉ USTED LA LECHE Y MIEL NO HACE UNA FAMILIA.

SOY UN TIPO QUE HA PERDIDO TODO EN MI VIDA. YO NO TENÍA NADA. ME PODIA PAGAR MI RENTA Y RECUERDO QUE ME SENTÍA LÁSTIMA DE MÍ MISMO Y PENSABA QUE MIS HIJOS ESTARÍAN MEJOR SIN MÍ. GRACIAS A DIOS ME DI LA VUELTA A PARTIR DE ESA IDEA. LA FAMILIA ES LO MÁS IMPORTANTE. ESA ES LA VERDAD. NO DEJE QUE NADIE LE DIGA DIFERENTE A USTED.

AUNQUE USTED PUEDE ENFRENTAR LO INIMAGINABLE, SU HIJO ESTARÁ EN PEORES MANOS HACIENDO EL VIAJE TRAICIONERO A TRAVÉS DE MÉXICO A ESTADOS UNIDOS.

HAY ESTADOUNIDENSES QUE TIENEN MIEDO DE IR A NUESTRA PROPIA FRONTERA.

CARLOS SÁNCHEZ DE 14 AÑOS HA TENIDO OCHO DE SUS AMIGOS Y FAMILIARES ASESINADOS.

TRES DE ESOS JUSTO DELANTE DE ÉL.

FUE TESTIGO DE UN DOBLE HOMICIDIO DESPUÉS DE QUE ALGUIEN NEGÓ ENTREGRAR SU MOTOCICLETA A UN PAR DE MATONES.

Y LUEGO VIO A UN HOMBRE CAMINANDO A CASA DESDE EL MERCADO, EJECUTADO EN PLENA CALLE.

AHORA DICE QUE ES 'NADA' PARA VER A UNA PERSONA MUERTA.

UNA VEZ MÁS, TIENE 14 AÑOS.

INCLUSO LOS PEORES PROBLEMAS EN ESTE PAÍS SON PÁLIDO EN COMPARACIÓN.

CRISTIAN OMAR REYES DE 11 AÑOS QUIERE SALIR DEMASIADO.

SU PADRE FUE ASESINADO EN MARZO.

SU MADRE USÓ EL DINERO DEL SEGURO DE VIDA PARA CONTRATAR A UN CONTRABANDISTA PARA LLEVARLA A LA FLORIDA.

SÓLO TENÍA SUFICIENTE PARA PAGAR POR SU MISMA. EN REALIDAD ELLA DEJÓ A SU HIJO DETRÁS Y PROMETIÓ QUE ENVIARÍA POR EL PRONTO.

ÉL TODAVÍA NO HA OÍDO DE ELLA.

HA JURADO A ESCAPAR A ESTADOS UNIDOS ESTE AÑO.

Y NO LO CULPO... ES FÁCIL JUZGAR A LA MADRE PARA DIVIDIR A SU FAMILIA.

GENTE DESESPERADA HACEN COSAS DESESPERADAS. MIENTRAS ME SIENTO AQUÍ EN LAS COMODIDADES RELATIVAS DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NO SUPONDRÉ QUE HARÍA ALGO DIFERENTE.

ESO ES LO QUE HACE ESTE PROGRAMA DIFÍCIL. PORQUE LE ESTOY ROGANDO... PARA HACER LO MÁS DIFÍCIL, PARA RESISTIR LA TENTACIÓN DE HUIR.

NO ROMPAS TU FAMILIA.

NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A UN CONTRABANDISTA EN MEDIO DE LA NOCHE.

LE HAN DICHO QUE ESTA ES LA TIERRA DE LECHE Y MIEL.

SE LES HA DICHO QUE SU HIJO TENDRÁ UNA VIDA MEJOR... INCLUSO SI SIGNIFICA QUE ESTÁN SIN SU MAMÁ Y PAPÁ.

NADIE ESTÁ DICIENDO DURA LA VERDAD --QUE AUNQUE TE ENFRENTAS A LO INIMAGINABLE, SU HIJO SERÁ AÚN PEOR EN EL PELIGROSO VIAJE A TRAVÉS DE MÉXICO A ESTADOS UNIDOS.

EN PRIMER LUGAR, EXISTEN LOS PELIGROS FÍSICOS. SERÁN FORTUNADOS DE LLEGAR VIVO. EL VIAJE COMIENZA EN EL TREN DE LA MUERTE. PARA ABORDAR, NIÑOS DEBEN SUBIRSE A ÉL MIENTRAS SE ESTÁ MOVIENDO. MUCHOS SON INCAPACES DE MANTENERSE EN EL. CAEN, PROVOCANDO QUE SER PISOTEADO POR EL TREN, PERDIENDO LOS BRAZOS Y LAS PIERNAS... SI SOBREVIVEN A LA CAÍDA, SE VEN OBLIGADOS A IR A CASA. VOLVER A DONDE EMPEZARON--SÓLO PEOR QUE ANTES.

ELLOS MÁS CERCA DE LA FRONTERA TIENEN QUE SOPORTAR EXTREMA TERRENO--SEGÚN INFORMES DE PRENSA, 'PEQUEÑO' CADÁVERES ESTÁN LAVANDO EN LAS ORILLAS DEL RÍO GRANDE.

SÓLO DIOS SABE LO QUE SUCEDIÓ EN LOS MOMENTOS ANTES DE QUE ESOS NIÑOS PRECIOSOS FALLECIERON.

MIS HIJOS TENÍAN MIEDOS DE LA OSCURIDAD.

NO PUEDO IMAGINAR EL TERROR QUE ESOS PEQUEÑOS NIÑOS SINTIERON FLOTANDO EN LA NOCHE, SOLO, EN EL PODEROSO RÍO GRANDE.

ME PREGUNTO SI CREÍAN DE MAMÁ Y PAPÁ COMO SU VIDA COLGABA EN EL EQUILIBRIO.

¿POR QUÉ ME DEJARON?

¿ESTARÉ BIEN?

LOS PADRES NUNCA LO SABRÁN. Y NUNCA VERÁN A SU HIJO OTRA VEZ.

PORQUELE QUERÍAN DAR DE ELLOS UNA "MEJOR VIDA."

OTROS NO SON ABANDONADOS POR UN CONTRABANDISTA COBARDE SÓLO BUSCAN GANAR UN DINERO FÁCIL.

QUE SON DIRIGIDO.

TOMADO.

NIÑOS Y NIÑAS IGUAL. LA VIDA DESPOJADO DE ELLOS. SU DIGNIDAD, SU VALOR, ROBADO--COMO SE VENDEN EN LA ESCLAVITUD SEXUAL.

TIM BALLARD HA VISTO DE PRIMERA MANO CÓMO LA INDUSTRIA DEL SEXO ESCLAVO HA FLORECIDO EN LA ANARQUÍA DE AMÉRICA LATINA. COMO PARTE DE UNA OPERACIÓN QUE VIERON PERSONALMENTE 20 NIÑAS DE 11 A 12 AÑOS DE EDAD.

ASUSTADO. TEMBLANDO.

DEMASIADA AVERGONZADAS PARA MIRAR EN CUALQUIER LUGAR OTRO QUE DIRECTAMENTE AL SUELO.

SE HAN IDENTIFICADO Y ACTUALMENTE ESTÁN TRABAJANDO PARA LIBERAR A UNOS 200 NIÑOS, TODOS LOS CUALES FUERON PRESENTADOS EN UN CATÁLOGO. SÍ, TRAFICANTES EN REALIDAD PRODUCEN E IMPRESIÓN CATÁLOGOS PARA MOSTRAR A LOS CLIENTES DE PERSPECTIVA.

¿SABES CÓMO SE SIENTE CUANDO SU HIJO CAE--OBTIENE UN CORTE O UN MORETÓN. LLORAN. MÁS VECES LA LESIÓN NO ES NI SIQUIERA MALAS. ELLOS ESTÁN LLORANDO PORQUE FUE LA CAÍDA, EL GOLPE O LO QUE SEA... LES DIO UN SUSTO. ASÍ LOS CONSUELOS. Y DUELE PARA VERLOS EN EL DOLOR.

IMAGINA QUE SENSACIÓN TIEMPOS 1 MILLÓN. SU HIJO. ATRAPADOS. ASUSTADO. OFRECIDO COMO UN PREMIO PARA LA ESCORIA DE LA HUMANIDAD. PARA EL ABUSO Y TIRAR A LA BASURA.

Y NO PUEDES ESTAR AHÍ PARA CONFORTARLOS.

NO PUEDES CONTESTAR SUS GRITOS.

ESTÁN SOLOS.

ESTÁS SOLO.

¿SUENA COMO UNA MEJOR VIDA?

USTED PUEDE SENTIRSE ATRAPADO. USTED PUEDE VER NINGUNA SALIDA.

PERO SIEMPRE HAY ESPERANZA. TE LO RUEGO. MANTENGA A SU FAMILIA JUNTA. NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A ALGÚN PERDEDOR QUE SÓLO SE PREOCUPA POR HACER ALGO PARA DINERO.

DIOS LE DIO ESE NIÑO. PARA CUIDAR DE EL. NUTRIRLOS. AMARLOS. PARA VIVIR LA ALEGRÍA DE VER LOS CRECER.

USTED NO LE ESTÁ DANDO A ELLOS UNA MEJOR VIDA SI NO ERES PARTE DE ELLA.

NO IMPORTA DONDE ESTAN.

NINGÚN NIÑO CAMBIARÍA UBICACIÓN A CAMBIO DE SUS PADRES.

LA FAMILIA ES UN REGALO. NECESITAMOS LA MAMA Y EL PAPÁ. ES SIMPLEMENTE LA FORMA EN QUE SOMOS. EN EL FONDO TODOS SABEMOS QUE ESTO ES CIERTO. NADIE TIENE QUE MOSTRARNOS

SU PAÍS PUEDE ESTAR EN LA AGITACIÓN.

SU CIUDAD PUEDE SER PELIGROSA.

PERO NADA ES MÁS DESTRUCTIVO QUE ROMPER LA FAMILIA.

VOY A LA FRONTERA ESTE SÁBADO.

VOY A ALIMENTAR A SUS HIJOS E HIJAS QUE HAN SOBREVIVIDO AL PELIGROSO VIAJE.

YO, SI SOLO POR UN MOMENTO, LOS CUIDARÉ. SI TIENE SED YO LE DARÉ, ALGO DE BEBER.

SI TIENEN HAMBRE VOY A DAR ALGO DE COMER.

SI ESTAN ABAJO VOY A TRATAR DE ANIMARLOS.

Y YO LES ANIMARÁ CON LAS PALABRAS QUE CADA NIÑO QUIERE OÍR:

NO TE PREOCUPES. PRONTO ESTARÁ EN SU CAMINO A CASA ... Y USTED ESTARÁ CON MAMÁ Y PAPÁ.

English Translation:

Tonight I want to do a very different show. I want to speak directly to the people of Mexico, Central and South America. Not a lecture. Not a rant. No scolding. Just a conversation from one parent to another. Dad to dad. Man to man. Heart to heart.

You don't have any idea who I am. My name is Glenn Beck and I am a radio and TV talk show host in the United States of America. I am somebody who is very much against illegal immigration. Our border is a mess here in America. Our border is filled with drugs and violence. Most Americans don't want to go near our border. In parts of Arizona we have lost about 80 or miles of our border where our government has posted signs that say 'if you are an American citizen, we can no longer protect you here.

Phoenix has become the kidnapping capitol of the world. I am seeing a country I don't even recognize. And you are seeing America becoming more like some of your countries because our governments are out of control. We're really not that different. We're people just trying to survive, just trying to be a family, just trying to raise our kids, have a job and a decent life. And our governments sometimes go bad. Both of us want two things: justice and mercy.

So you know up front, while I am against illegal immigration, I believe in justice. I also believe in mercy and as a private citizen, I have decided to use my resources to go down to the border where your children perhaps are being held in churches. They are being held in squalor. We don't see some of the pictures because our government won't allow us. We're not allowed to see what's happening in our own country. I and my viewers and my listeners have raised over 2 million dollars to bring your children a teddy bear or a soccer ball or shoes. We are bringing over a million dollars worth of food as well. We do this because we are Christians. I believe deeply in God and I believe if I can't help your child, I'm going to be held responsible for it. I want to talk to you tonight about what you may not see. I cannot relate to your life. I see families south of our border that our devasted as we go on vacation and we go to places like Mexico. It breaks our heart to see the poverty. The families that are being torn apart by violence. I cannot comprehend living through what some have lived through. What you may be living through.

I can't imagine not having the rights that we take for granted. I can't imagine the life of 14 year old Carlos Sanchez. He had eight of his friends and families murdered. Three right in front of him. He witnessed a double murder after someone refused to hand over his motorcycle to a group of thugs. And then he saw a man walking home from the market, executed right in front of the street. He says now, it's nothing to see a dead person.

I have a ten year old son. I cannot imagine my ten year old son saying that. Even the worse problems in this country are not that. Another story from perhaps your country -- 11 year old christian Omar Reyes. He wants to get out and come to America.

His dad was murdered back in March.

His mom used the life insurance money to hire a smuggler to take her to Florida.

She only had enough to pay for herself. She left him behind and promised to send for him.

He still hasn't heard from her.

We don't know what happened to her.

He has vowed to escape to America this year to look for mom.

I guess for some Americans it would be easy to judge a mother for splitting her family.

My Uncle Leo was from Italy. When World War Two happened the family pooled their money together and sent my uncle to America. He was an American citizen. He was born here but the family was from Italy. This happens throughout world history. I don't blame him for wanting to leave. I don't blame you for sending your kids.

Desperate people do desperate things. As I sit here in the relative comforts of the United States, I will not presume that I would do anything differently than what you have done or are perhaps considering doing.

That's what makes this situation so difficult. This is why so many of us in America feel so passionately about your children.

This is why so many people have taken ten or twenty dollars and put it together to feed or put shoes on your children. We are doing the hard thing and our country is being torn apart because our government is not doing its job and upholding justice.

As we do the hard thing -- I'm going to ask you kindly will you please consider doing the hard thing as well. Would you resist the temptation to flee or to break up your family.

Please do not hand your child off to a smuggler in the middle of the night.

You probably have been told that this is the land of milk and honey.

While are own politicians say we are not a exceptional nation, we are. We have been greatly blessed. And we have made horrible mistakes in the past. Quite honestly sometimes i think we don't deserve all the blessings we have. We have lost our way in the last ten or twenty years, but we're trying.

You may have been told your child will have a better life.

But I will tell you milk and honey does not make a family.

I'm a guy who lost everything in my life. I had nothing. I couldn't afford my rent and I remember feeling sorry for myself and thinking my children would be better off without me. Thank God I turned around from that idea. Family is the most important thing. That is the truth. Don't let anybody else tell you differently.

Even though you may face the unimaginable, your child will be worse off making the treacherous journey through Mexico to the United States.

There are Americans who are afraid to go to our own border.

First, there's the physical dangers. They will be lucky to make it alive. The journey begins on the death train.To board it, children must jump on to it while it's moving. Many are unable to hold on. They fall, causing them to be trampled by the train, losing arms and legs... If they survive the fall, they are forced to go back home. Back to where they started -- only worse off than before.

Those who make it closer to the border have to endure extreme terrain -- according to news reports, 'little' dead bodies are washing up on the shores of the Rio Grande.

God only knows what happened in the moments before precious children -- like this little boy -- passed away.

My kids were afraid of the dark. I can't even begin to imagine the terror those young children felt as they floated off into the night, alone, on the mighty Rio Grande. You and I know as parents, their last thoughts were "will I be ok", "why did they leave me?"

Those parents will never know. And they will never see their child again. Because they wanted to give them a 'better life'...

Others are not abandoned by a cowardly smuggler just looking to make an easy buck.

They are targeted.

Taken.

Boys and girls both... their human-ness stripped from them... their dignity, their worth, robbed -- as they are sold into sex slavery.

Tim Ballard (Operation Underground Railroad) has seen first hand how the sex slave industry has flourished in the lawlessness of latin america. As part of an operation they personally saw 20 girls aged 11 to 12 years old.

Frightened. Trembling.

Too ashamed to look anywhere other than directly at the ground.

They have identified and are currently working to liberate some 200 kids -- all of whom were featured in a catalogue. Yes, traffickers actually produce and print catalogues to show to perspective clients. The reason I know this is because my charity has raised money to rescue some of these kids and return them to their family- but there are thousands we have personally seen that we cant get to. You know how it feels when your child falls -- gets a cut, or a bruise. They cry -- most times the injury isn't even that bad. They are crying because the fall, the bump, or whatever it was -- it scared them. So you comfort them. And it pains you to see them in pain.

Imagine that feeling times a million. Your child. Trapped. Scared. Offered up as a prize for the slime of humanity. To abuse and throw away.

And you cannot be there to comfort them.

You cannot answer their cries.

They are alone.

You are alone.

Does that sound like a better life?

You may feel trapped. You may see no way out.

But there is always hope. I beg you. Keep your family together. Do not hand your child off to someone who only cares about making some cash.

God gave you that child. To care for them. To nurture them. To love them. To experience the joy of seeing them grow.

You are not giving them a better life- if you are not part of it.

No matter where they are.

No child would trade location in exchange for their parents.

Family is a gift. We need mom and dad. It's just the way we're wired. Deep down we all know this to be true. No one has to teach it to us.

Your country may be in turmoil.

Your town may be dangerous.

But nothing is more destructive than breaking apart the family.

I am going to the border this Saturday.

I will meet your sons and daughters who have survived the dangerous journey.

I will, if just for a moment, care for them. If they are thirsty I will give them something to drink.

If they are hungry I will give them something to eat.

If they're down I will try to cheer them up.

And I will encourage them with the words every child wants to hear: Don't worry. Soon you'll be on your way back home... And you will be with mom and dad.

This story has been updated. 

The media went nuts after President Donald Trump said "Two Corinthians". But apparently, nobody cares when Joe Biden called the authors of Biblical Psalms "palmists" — twice.

During a Thanksgiving speech on Wednesday, Biden said, "I'm sure we can, we can pros-claim [sic] a palmist, with a palmist who wrote these following words, 'The lord is my strength and my shield and with my song, I give thanks to him.'"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere pondered whether Biden actually meant to quote a fortune teller instead of a psalmist, but ultimately decided the former vice president likely had no idea what he was reading.

They also discussed the hairline fractures Biden suffered in his right foot on Saturday while playing his dog, and Glenn tossed out a few headlines he thought might work just a little too well.

The Supreme Court slapped down New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 restrictions on religious gatherings Wednesday, arguing that strict limitations on the number of people in churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship — while liquor stores, bike shops, and many other non-religious places face few or no restrictions at all — are in violation of the First Amendment.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere applauded Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who reportedly cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch who took specific aim at Gov. Cuomo for limiting religious gatherings to as few as 10 people in some areas, while imposing "no capacity restrictions on certain businesses he considers 'essential'."

"It turns out the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists, and liquor stores," Gorsuch said. "Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers, and insurance agents are all essential too."

"Government is not free to disregard the 1st Amendment in times of crisis," Gorsuch wrote in a separate opinion.

Gov. Cuomo has since called the Supreme Court ruling "moot" and "irrelevant" because he had recently lifted restrictions in most of the affected areas.

"This is a trick they play all the time. They've done this with Second Amendment cases as well," Stu noted. "They'll put a ridiculous restriction in that's obviously not constitutional, keep it in place for a year while it goes through the courts, and right before it gets to the Supreme Court they withdraw the rule. So then the case gets thrown out because it's moot."

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

Wikimedia Commons

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."
